5. SiVArc in the Open Library


SiVArc is a plug-in tool for TIA Portal V14 and later that allows for the automatic creation of screens
and screen objects using the function blocks in the control program, master copy screen templates,
and screen rules. The open library includes screen rules and master screens to allow SiVArc to be
used with all the device and most of the process objects in the library. These can be found under
Master Copies > SiVArc in the library. Using the included screen rules, screens are created for each
system in the program, and all the icons from that system populate to the screen. Pop-up screens
are created for each instance of the function block. To determine which icon or popup faceplate is
used with each instance of the function block, in cases where there is more than one option,
condition statements looking at the network title for the network on which the instance of the
block is called are used.

The example project has the SiVArc functionality integrated, and the SiVArcWaterTreatmentHMI
device shows the auto-generation produced by the control program and screen rules from the
library. One thing to note is that the standard set of SiVArc rules will not generate the multiplexed
valve system in the example project correctly.

6. Using SiVArc with the open library


This section provides a checklist of things to do when adding SiVArc functionality to the project.

6.1. Make sure the SiVArc plug-in is installed and compatible with the project.
The SiVArc plug-in requires a license; a trial (21 day) license can be found on the Siemens website
(PN: 6AV2107-0PX04-0AA7) . SiVArc is only compatible with TIA Portal V14 and later, and is only
compatible with a limited set of PLC’s. The S7-1200 and S7-1500 are included in this set, the S7-300
and S7-400 are not included.

6.2. Add Screen Rules.


The screen rules from the library can be added by dragging them to the “Screen Rules” page found
under Common Data>SiVArc in the project tree. An example of this is shown below.

j
Other screen rules can be added to customize the project as desired; make sure the types of
program block and screen object are selected from the project library if you want all blocks of a
type to autogenerate the visualization.

6.3. Check Organization and Network naming.


Check to make sure the organization of the program lines up with the desired screens. Per the
rules included in the library, a screen is created for each system block that calls library objects. So,
for example, the example project has 3 system blocks, and creates three screens to line up with
these.

Also check the network title anywhere a function block from the library is called, and make sure it
matches the format described for the library object in the document “4-Detailed Block
Descriptions”. The network title is used to define titles for pop-ups, as well as which icons get
populated per the screen rules. An example of a block call with a corresponding network title:
6.4. Generate the Visualization.
To generate the screens from the control program, right click on the HMI where you would like the
visualization to be populated, and select “Generate the visualization (SiVArc)” > “Generate the
visualization” (shown below). This can be done many times throughout the development of the
program; the screens will be refreshed each time the generation is selected. How the generation
will refresh is dependent on the layout defined by the Master Copy of a screen and layout fields
used in rules. For the open library rules, layout fields are only defined for pop-ups, so non-pop-up
icons will be refreshed at whatever location they were last moved to.

7. Faceplate SiVArc properties


SiVArc in the library is currently only implemented for WinCC Comfort/Advanced faceplates. All the
faceplates have names, HMI_Devicetype tags, and events defined through SiVArc. The pop-up
faceplates also have titles defined through SiVArc. This section covers how each of these properties
is defined.

7.1. Name
The name of the faceplate is determined from the user assigned name of the instance of the
function block it is associated with. Occurences of “ins” and “Ins” are removed from the name of
the data block, and the name is preceded with fp.
Example:

insSOL_Overflow  fpSol_Overflow

7.2. HMI_Devicetype Tag connection


The HMI tag referenced by the HMI_Devicetype property of the faceplate is defined by taking the
PLC tag of udtHMI_Devicetype used by the function block and replacing the “.” with the separator
character defined by “TagNaming.SeperatorChar”. If this HMI tag doesn’t already exist when the
visualization is generated, it will be created and connected to PLC tag of udtHMI_Devicetype.

Example:

HMIData.SOL_Overflow  HMIData_SOL_Overflow

7.3. Events
The event on the Icon faceplates opens the associated pop-up when the icon is clicked, and the
event on the pop-up closes itself when the close button is released. These events assume the name
of the pop-up screen is “popup” followed by the user defined name of the associated instance of
the function block. The pop-up screens will auto-generate according to this name convention.
Example:

insSOL_Overflow  popupinsSOL_Overflow

7.4. Pop-up Title


The title of the pop-up is determined from the first part (i.e. the part before an underscore) of the
title of the network where the instance of the function block is called. If the network title isn’t
defined, a default title related to the type being called is used. Example:

The network is titled “Overflow Valve_Horizontal”  The pop-up title is “Overflow Valve”

The network isn’t titled  The popup title is “Solenoid Valve ##”

8. Screen Rules
This section covers the different parts of screen rules and how the rules saved to the library are
implemented.

8.1. Components
Each screen rule is named, and includes a Program Block, a Screen Object, and a Master Copy of a
Screen. Optionally, a Layout Field and Condition can also be specified.

8.1.1. Program Block


The Program Block field specifies the type that, when used in the control program, will create a
visualization automatically. Each program block can have multiple rules associated with it. For
example, there might be one rule to create an icon, and another to create a popup screen. Any
function block in the project can be specified in this field, but it is recommended to specify the
function block type in the project library, as then the rule will run for any instance of that type in
the project.

8.1.2. Screen Object


The Screen Object field specifies the visualization to be created. A single screen object can be used
in more than one rule, for instance if there is more than one function block that could be used with
a single icon (e.g. Analog and Gseries VFD’s). Screen object types are specified from the project
library, and it is important that they have SiVArc properties associated with them. All the faceplates
for S7-1200/1500 on the WinCC Comfort/Advanced in the library have SiVArc properties defined.

8.1.3. Master Copy of a Screen


The Master Copy of a Screen field specifies to which screen a screen object gets populated. For
instance, this would specify whether it should go to the screen for that system, or a pop up screen.
Layout fields can further specify location. Master copies of screens can be used for any number of
rules, and are called from the project library. In the open library, an overview screen and pop-up
screens for each type are available. The Overview master screen creates a screen for each block
that calls the library function blocks. For example, the Example Project has three system function
blocks that then call blocks to which the screen rules apply; each system function block creates a
screen when the generation is run.

8.1.4. Layout Field


The Layout Field is an optional component of a screen rule, and specifies where on the screen an
object should be populated. Layout fields are required for pop-up screens. These fields are
specified on the Master Copies of screens by drawing and labeling a rectangle. If a layout field is
defined, the screen object will always be generated into the location specified by the layout field. If
a layout field isn’t defined, the screen object will be initially generated to grid on the specified
screen, then regenerated wherever it gets moved to on that screen by the user. The open library
has layout fields defined for each pop-up screen Master Copy, and no layout fields specified on the
overview screen.

8.1.5. Condition
The Condition field is an optional part of a screen rule, and allows the user to specify a true/false
statement that is evaluated for each instance of the function block and determines whether the
screen rule creates a visualization. This is useful if a type of function block can have more than one
icon type. For instance, a VFD function block could control a motor or a pump, or you might want
the icon to display in either a horizontal or vertical orientation. In the rules defined in the open
library, the valve, motor, VFD, PID, and interlock types have conditions specified. For the Interlock
type, which popup is used is determined based on whether more than 8 inputs to the interlock are
assigned. For all the other types, the condition looks at the network title where the instance of the
function block is called. For the valve and PID types, the second part of the network title (after the
first underscore) is looked at, and for the motor and VFD types, both the second and third part of
the network title are considered. How these conditions are implemented is covered in more detail
below.

8.2. In the Library


The sets of rules for each type of library object can be found under Master copies> SiVarc>
Devices> Devicetype and Master copies>Sivarc>Process>Type folders. These rules can be added to
the project by dragging the screen rule item from each Type folder into the screen rules page,
found under Common Data > SiVArc in portal. Screen rules exist for all the faceplates except
System Control. As there is no function block associated with the System Control object, rules
cannot be created to make the faceplates autogenerate.

Below is a table of all the rules in the library as the appear in the screen rules screen in Portal. More
information about how the rules apply to each type can be found in the detailed block
descriptions.
